The farm owner and Dairy Holdings chief executive joined DairyNZ’s Board in October 2017. Colin is particularly passionate about dairy farmers connecting with the wider community and showcasing the great work being done on farms.
“We have had a massive refocus on what is important to the sector – the new dairy strategy highlights the need for us to have vibrant, profitable businesses and communities,” says Colin. “But that has to be done in a sustainable way that plays on New Zealand’s competitive advantage.
“If we are able to be both sustainable and competitive, it bodes well for the future of dairy farming and our communities. We’ve faced our fair share of challenges, but we’ve stood up and taken responsibility to address them.”
Colin is thrilled to be part of DairyNZ’s Board of Directors and working with the team to make positive changes for the industry’s future.
“We all try and make a difference, we all have things to achieve, and you just get on and do them. That’s the best way to be the best contributor you can be.”
